UTC, Hamilton County Schools host virtual band

HAMILTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WDEF) — The UTC Performing Arts department is finding new ways to get musicians together, while still practicing social distancing.

Dr. Kenyon Wilson is partnering with the Hamilton County School District to host a virtual band. However, you don’t have to be a student to participate.

All you have to do is go to the virtual band’s website, download your sheet music, and submit a video of you playing the piece.

UTC will then edit all the videos together into one large virtual ensemble.

“If there’s one thing that’s come out of all of this, it’s the creativity and the ingenuity of everyone just figuring out what they can do in an alternative format,” Dr. Wilson said.

The band will be performing “Five,” a song composed by Dr. Wilson in honor of the Fallen Five.

The deadline to submit your piece is April 15, 2020.
